Wow. 80 mph in a 45 mph zone with an open beer = no charges

Me going 38 in a 25 MPH zone last year = $90

Just because there wasn't charges doesnt mean it didn't cost him plenty.  Get what you're saying though.

Wow, amazing. A black guy wound up being stopped and arrested for no reason. Who’d have thunk it in this day and age?

Perhaps the police officer did not observe this behavior.

 

I do not believe they can charge someone with a traffic violation based on hearsay (a phoned report) but perhaps I am incorrect here?

 

I personally would not want to be able to be charged with something because Citizen Cathy called the police and reported that I was driving 80 mpg in a 45 mpg zone and driving erratically, unless there were some corroborating evidence of this.

Right? What cop would put his livelihood and life as he knows it on the line for that?

Usually this would be a 4 game suspension, I'll bet the Jets, Dolphins, and Rams have to be pretty pissed about this with how bad their olines are

The suspension wouldn't have been this season

Good for Ed.

 

He handled the situation perfectly, and now he’s been exonerated by the evidence.

Dont blame him for venting there, though I'd encourage him to try and avoid it. He nailed this situation overall. Nice work Ed

Your application of this often times overused phrase is truly exemplary. :lol:

Now ask yourself what would have happened if the person pulled over couldn't afford a decent lawyer.

Most people get screwed in municipal courts.  The judge knows the prosecutor, the prosecutor knows the cops, the cops know both.  And your defense attorney is usually familiar with them all.  Unless you're looking at a license suspension or big DUI fine you're better off  pleading guilty, pay the fine, and save the expense of a lawyer that isn't going to do much of anything for you.  It comes down to your word against the cops and guess who the judge is going to believe?  If there is video it will be supporting their case.  If there is video supporting your case it got accidentally erased.  The whole thing is a revenue generating racket for the towns.

I mean he certainly did have a hard time walking that line for the sobriety test

 

He did look under the influence of something

 

But if you're just that tired where you can't walk straight you probably shouldn't drive

I hope that Oliver is a little more careful in the future to not even look like he's engaged in suspicious activity.

Should have put this in the original thread.  That had some comedy gold in it.

 

Anyway, free and clear.  Ol' Rog can't do a thing.
